The Daytime Emmy Awards: Eileen Davidson & Chandler Massey win!

The 41st Daytime Emmy Awards were held last night, and for the first time in its history, the ceremony was broadcast online instead of on TV. And it was a marked improvement over last year's dismal event on Headline News. Of course, having the fabulous Kathy Griffin as the host certainly helped (I especially enjoyed her retro shout-out to Peyton Place and "that nice Mia Farrow"). However, the red carpet pre-show was, unfortunately, quite excruciating to watch due to the fact that the four annoying female hosts were terrible at conducting interviews. I was also confused about why the pre-show ran two hours while the awards themselves had to hurry up and end after only an hour and 45 minutes. This just didn't make much sense. But, again, I must say that this year's Daytime Emmys were so much better than last year's - the bright red "interview" couch did not return (thank God), while actual clips of the nominated performances were shown (hooray!).

Below is a list of the winners in the major categories (click here for a complete list). You can also watch the entire telecast below, but I strongly suggest that you skip the red carpet and jump ahead two hours to the beginning of the actual ceremony:

Outstanding Drama Series: The Young and the Restless

Outstanding Drama Series Writing Team: The Young and the Restless

Outstanding Drama Series Directing Team: One Life to Live

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series: Eileen Davidson deservedly won her first Daytime Emmy for her diva-licious performance as Kristen DiMera on Days of our Lives.

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series: Billy Miller, The Young and the Restless

Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series: Amelia Heinle, The Young and the Restless

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series: Eric Martsolf, Days of our Lives

Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series: Hunter King, The Young and the Restless

Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series: The adorable Chandler Massey, who won his third consecutive award for his performance as Will Horton on Days of our Lives, delivered the night's most amusing response after a clip featuring Guy Wilson - who replaced him in the role this year - was seen by mistake just before he won: "Wow, did you see my reel? That was awesome!"

Outstanding New Approaches - Drama Series: Venice The Series

Outstanding Talk Show/Entertainment: The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Outstanding Talk Show/Informative: Steve Harvey

Outstanding Talk Show Host: A tie between Dr. Mehmet Oz, The Dr. Oz Show, and Katie Couric, Katie
